Founded by Will Dobkins, Homestead Iron (“Sharpest Tools in the Shed”) is a small company in Squires, MO, offering a line of high-quality garden tools, crafted with skill and care. Each blade is hand-forged with C1075 high-carbon steel, precision TIG welded to a hand-forged shank. The hickory handles are sourced from a local manufacturer and finished with beeswax and linseed oil. These tools are study and long-lasting, designed to work well and to enhance the gardening experience. Note: these tools are carefully ground by hand to ensure a very sharp cutting edge; please keep away from children (except your grandchildren when they’re old enough to inherit them).
